Browsing on Pinterest the other day, I was looking for a brownie recipe that was new and exciting and different.
I found approximately 297 I wanted to try right then, but instead decided to combine a couple of recipes I found and see how it went.
It went well. Really well. Quite tasty, even.
So here is what I came up with!
Coconut Cream Brownies
1 box brownie mix
1 cup sweetened flake coconut
1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 can chocolate frosting
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix brownies according to package directions. Spread half of mix in a greased 8 1/2 x 14 baking pan. Mix coconut, cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until well blended. Spoon over brownie batter. Top with remaining batter and bake at 350 degrees for about 30-35 minutes or until brownie batter is set. Do not over cook. You can take this out just before it seems quiet done and it should be perfect.
Microwave about 1/2 to 2/3 cup of the frosting for 10 seconds and pour over cooled brownies. Top with sliced almonds and serve.
